Hi guys
I'll start a topic on "how to" for opening and resealing the clocks.
It'll take a few months so a little bit of patience please. I need higher temperatures to respray the metal housings...

Hello guys
some more news!
This morning a box arrived and there were some parts inside.
I had the opportunity to mount them on the bike.
Let's have a look.

the front mudguard

The front mudguard was bolted to the fork, it took some fiddling but it turned out right in the end

the chain guard

The chain guard went on very fast, only two bolts, a matter of minutes.

the rear view mirrors

Then it was time to mount the rear view mirrors, after a bit of adjusting they're at the right angle.
The spark plug caps and the battery leads were also installed.
It starts to look like a Z1B.
I only need a 4 in 4 exhaust system to complete the restoration.
That part will be ordered next month.
More to come, stay tuned!

Hi men
the Z1B isn't finished yet...I planned to order a 4 in 4 exhaust in Germany at Z-Fever but André, the shop keeper, had a hart attack during the month of february and he's still recovering from it so his shop is closed until further notice...
I planned to order an exhaust for my '72 Z1 and to mount the 4 in 4 exhaust, which actually is on my '72 Z1, on my Z1B.
I'll have to postpone my plan until André has recovered. It could take some months. :down
But...I started the restoration of a Z1000ST :shock: Yes another one: the fifth :Oo
So I start a new subject.
The restoration of a Z1000ST to standard specs.

Philippe, if your stuck for 4/4 pipes give Phil a ring at z power in the UK, he will export to you, and at a decent price, get a discount for being a member of the club.

Hi men
@ Bill: Thank you!
@David Z1R: I know, thanks, but I would like to have the MTC '72 pipes...to put on my '72 Z1 so I'll have to wait anyway.
